Funnyman Kevin Nealon has placed his three-bedroom beach cottage in Manhattan Beach, Calif. on the market for $3,295,000.
This is another in our long, long line of items that we have needed to catch up on. Our friends over at the Real Estalker broke the story on May 13 of Nealon's listing of his longtime house, which hit the market on May 7.
Located down near LAX airport, Manhattan Beach isn't a community that we write much about, largely because the celebrity quotient there is generally pretty low. We have known some friends (from high school, no less!) who have lived in Manhattan Beach, and we also have known employees of a company in El Segundo who have amusingly referred to that Manhattan Beach/Hermosa Beach area as "the bubble" for its general lack of diversity.
That said, it's pretty country, and we're sure that's what originally drew Nealon, 55, to the community. Records show that he and his first wife, Linda Dupree, paid $1,100,000 to purchase the house in 1999. Now, Nealon (shown here with his second wife, actress, Susan Yeagley, who is almost 20 years his junior) on his second marriage, and doubtless is looking for something more family-friendly, given that they had their first child in 2007.
Built in 1936, Nealon's 1,546-square-foot house has three bedrooms and two baths, plus a gourmet kitchen with Viking and Wolf stainless steel appliances including a wine refrigerator, and a living room with a fireplace, bay windows and a seating area, according to public records and listing information. Other features include a master bedroom with a balcony, and a remodeled bath with custom tile and a claw-foot tub, according to listing information. Outdoor features on the 0.06-acre (2,692-square-foot) property include ocean views, a detached two-car garage and a one-bedroom, 595-square-foot guest house with one bath, a full kitchen, a laundry and a separate seating area, according to public records and listing information. In all, as listing information notes, the property crams 2,141 square feet of living space onto one of the smallest parcels we've ever run across.
Interestingly, the property actually has two separate addresses: one facing the main street, and one facing the narrow, alley-like parallel street. The address shown in listing information actually is not the parcel's "official" address with the assessor; however, celebrityaddressaerial.com has the "correct" address (per the assessor) in its exhaustive list of celebrity addresses.
As the Real Estalker correctly noted, Nealon continues to own other properties, both in California and in Florida. Records show that he owns a 1,230-square-foot condominium unit in Los Angeles' Studio City area, plus a 1,286-square-foot condominium unit in Captiva, Fla. that he purchased in 2006 for $461,500. Nealon also deeded his share of a 2,810-square-foot house in Woodland Hills, Calif. to his ex-wife, Linda Dupree, in late 2006, according to public records.
